Details

Located about 15 miles north of Rifle, these limestone caves, hidden behind frozen waterfalls, display an amazing tapestry of ice that filters the outside light in intense shades of blue. The caves are accessed by a short trail from the road. After exploring the caves, we'll make a stop at Rifle Falls State Park and hike along an easy trail that goes above, and below, these ice-covered falls. Foot traction devices (Yaktrax, micro-spikes, etc.) required. Flashlights are not needed. Short coffee stop on the way in. Possible lunch stop in Rifle afterwards. Plan to help pay for gas and entry fees.




Notes

DENVER/FRONT RANGE MEMBERS: Please note the meeting spot is a minimum three-hour drive from the Denver metro area.
